Relative susceptibility of mothbean, Vigna aconitifolia varieties to sucking pests
A filed experiment was conducted to screen relative susceptibility of nine mothbean, Vigna acobitifolis varieties against two major sucking pests’ viz. jassid and whitefly. It was observed that MBS 803 and RMO 4-1-6-09 were less susceptible while RMO-225 and CZM-2 were highly susceptible and remaining cultivars were moderately susceptible to jassid. Varieties VMB101 and MBS605 were found to be less susceptible while CZM-2 and RMO 3-5-70 were highly susceptible and remaining cultivars were moderately susceptible to while fly.
